CPA Vision Project Earns Laurels


The International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) bestowed its Gold Quill Award on the Institute’s CPA Vision project in April. In announcing its decision, the IABC cited the outstanding quality of the project’s member communications program—its planning, research, execution and results.
